Benedictine Community – Sakharani

The Sakharani community is situated in the Usambara Mountains, in Lushoto District. Standing at 1300m above sea level, Sakharani is an ideal place for various agricultural activities. Apart from growing fruits and vegetables, Sakharani boasts of a massive forest project with thousands of trees.  Grape farming, though unusual in Usambara, has enabled the small community to produce its own brand of wine famously known as Sakharani Wine.  The  community is comprised of about five members and serves as a starting point for the young people who want to join our monastic life.
